1      3 oz. package instant chocolate pudding mix

     Mix the cake mix and pudding mix; beat in the sour cream, eggs, water, vegetable oil, and chocolate chips.

     Spray the inside of a 5 quart Crock Pot with vegetable cooking spray; pour in the batter Cover and cook on low 3-4 hours.  Center should be just set; a toothpick inserted in the center will come out with moist crumbs when done.  Do not overcook.
